Obama sings at eulogy for pastor killed in Charleston shooting
"We are here today to remember a man of God who lived by faith," Obama said. "A man who believed in things not seen. A man who believed there were better days ahead, off in the distance. A man of service who persevered knowing full well he would not receive all those things he was promised, because he believed his efforts would provide a better life for those who followed."
The Presided ended the memorable speech that touched topics such as social issues, race and religion with a rare moment by singing the first chorus of "Amazing Grace". The mourners present on the scene stood up and joined him singing.
